Anyone else?
I am running 19t on asphault on a medium sized track. I know it isn't carpet but it's probably pretty close to the same gear ratio. My ideal setup has been to run a 36 tooth pinion. I thought the same thing as you when I saw that 37-40 was ideal and, sure enough, when i started with a 37 it was too high. So I would start with a 36......it's always better for your motor to start too low than too high.

I dont want to glue the edge if this is going to happen and having to remove the glue in the future, but bare in mind Dave Spashet does run a MSX

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

I would not worry to much about that if I where you, I dont know what noise Dave's hearing, but it won't be the cyno unless he is wringing the the chassi's neck

I don't mean to disrespect Mr. Spashett, but I haven't heard of such issues regarding chassis prep. Gluing the edges cleanly won't harm your chassis and it will protect it from delamination.

Trakside, Keep in mind Spash can get free chassis pretty easy if the delaminate? I would glue it and make it as durable as possible. The thin Losi glue is actually a little flexible if applied correctly(thin bead dripped down the edeg white holding vertical).

J., cool stickers, next batch of bodies to paint i'm assuming there may be some in the box? heh heh...............Jim

if yoiu use CA make sure if you dont' want white spots on your chassis to mask one side of your Chassis before you glue it. It will help you keep from Getting glue all over the serface.

Cool Losi design

I design products myself (not the RC industry) and I find the Losi JRXS to be quite elegant. It is simple, stiff and very well thought out.
I run it locally with guys all running Xrays and TC4 cars.
I am not quite the driver some of these other guys are. I assure you all of the racers that have driven my car have said it is almost unfair how it handles compaired to their cars. On the track it seems I can do things they cannot and I know it is not my skill by any means.
The centered design means the car does not roll like the other cars. I can run the car lower, with harder tires and carry the speed more. Tire wear is almost not and issue when compaired to other cars.
It is different. The design is new.
I don't think the Losi drivers are the cream of the crop right now. Hince the lack of dominance in big races. The car is competitive and I guarantee Masami, Reinhardt or Hara could win with it. It not because of the car as much as it is they are that good. These races are finished with mere seconds seperating the leaders only because there is not enough room for the cars to be any closer.
Keep watching and I think you will see this car podium more and more.
R&D must continue to provide the best products with the best value year after year.
Jim - Get to WORK! I'll see you at World Cup.

It's a great investment since the new arms are cracking but yes the arms will be done next week not anodized.
